History

2008-09: Played in 63 games for the Belleville Bulls in his OHL rookie season.  Silas scored 3 goals and added 14 assists for 17 points, also registering 18 penalty minutes.  In 17 playoff games for the Bulls, he did not register a point. 

2009-10: Silas improved his totals, picking up 4 goals and 45 assists for 49 points in 66 games for Belleville.  Played for Team Orr at the 2010 Top Prospects Game.

2010-11: Silas skated in a career-high 68 games in his third season with OHL Belleville and was second on the Bulls with 34 assists as a defenseman. He scored 2 goals with 52 PMs and was -16. The Bulls reached the OHL playoffs despite winning just 21 games but were no match for regular season champion Mississauga St. Michael's in their first round series. Silas finished -2 with 2 PMs in four games against the Majors.

Talent Analysis

Silas is not afraid to thrown his body around, and has a good grasp of the offensive side of the game but his skating and defensive play leave more to be desired. His greatest attribute is his playmaking ability.

Future

Silas will spend another season or two at the OHL level, working on his shot, his skating and improving his positional play.

2001 A.C. – After Comrie

by Jeff Bromley
on
Mike Comrie has left the building, and the city and the area, all for the bright lights and greener pastures of
the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers. Turn out the lights, stick a fork in ‘em, the Kootenay ICE are done, right?
Wrong, and there are twenty-four other hockey players in the ICE dressing room who are out to prove it.

The post Mike Comrie era began last week in haste as the Kootenay ICE took a possible three of four points
from the Brandon Wheat Kings in a two game doubleheader over the weekend at the RecPlex. In the
4-1Friday night win and 3-2 overtime loss on Saturday, the ICE proved two things. That they indeed have
depth to spare and that the club can play an in-your-face, physical, mucking in the corners brand of hockey.

Skating with a line-up depleted of no less than seven skaters on Friday and nine on Saturday with the loss
of Bret DeCecco to a concussion and Cole Fischer midway through the first frame with re-aggravated back
spasms that also caused him to miss Friday’s contest, from a sheer count of so-called impact players, things
did not look good for the ICE. Missing Jarret Stoll and Zdenek Blatny at the World Junior Championships,
Comrie signing with the Oilers, Svatos still out with transfer problems from Slovakia, standout rookies Andy
Thompson and Adam Taylor at the under-17 tournament in Truro, Nova Scotia and Aaron Rome going
down Friday night with a shoulder injury, needless to say, there was a lot of room on the bench. Do the
math and the ICE were missing seven of their top eleven scorers on the club. A precarious Read more»

Woeful Isles To Give Kolnik A Shot

by Jonathan Litterine
on
The New York Islanders are supposed to be better then they are
playing.
As everybody knows when things don’t go right roster moves are made. It
is
now Juraj Kolnik’s turn. The former Rimouski Oceanic Star is due to make
his
NHL Debut against the Atlanta Thrashers on December 29. Kolnik who just
turned 20 on November 13th is a childhood friend of Islanders defensemen
Branislav Mezei. Both grew up in Nitra,Slovakia. Kolnik is hoping to
duplicate the success of former Rimouski grads Vincent Lecavalier and
Brad
Richards, both are currently playing with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Since
98-99 Kolnik has had 190 points in 109 QMJHL games. He has split time
this
year with Lowell and Springfield of the American Hockey League. Kolnik
is a
amazing offensive player with great skills. His problem is defense. He
has a
one track mind, offense and nothing else. The Islanders can’t score and they give up too many
goals. If
Kolnik can help them in any form the Islanders will be thrilled. Yet
Kolnik
alone can’t put them in the playoffs. The Islanders need a lot of help.
Maybe
General Manager Mike Milbury can get them help in some trades.

The Weekend Warrior

Another in a series of weekly articles summarizing activity in Leafland during the previous 7 days – with some personal observations, commentary, prospect updates and fun thrown in for good measure.

Catching up: December 16th – the Maple Leafs fall to Calgary in overtime 6-5 … December 19th – defenseman Nathan Dempsey was dispatched to St. John’s despite some very solid play in 8 games with the team … the move was made in order to maintain optimum roster flexibility as waivers would have been required in order to return Dempsey to the Rock following 10 NHL starts … rookie Petr Svoboda is recalled in order to fill Dempsey’s spot and produces decidedly mixed results in the ensuing games … December 20th – the Leafs are stoned by Mike Dunham and fall to Nashville at home 3-1 … December 21st – Boston shuts out Toronto 4-0 and only Tie Domi seems concerned … December 23rd – the Leafs provide their fans with the only gift of the Christmas season with a convincing 5-2 victory over the Habs in Montreal … December 26th – rookie goaler Milan Hnilicka backstops the Thrashers to a 5-3 win over Toronto in Atlanta … December 27th – the Maple Leafs send a belated Christmas gift to NHL headquarters at Mario Lemieux’s homecoming party by neglecting to defend against the superstar in any meaningful way as the Pens embarrass Toronto 5-0 … December 28th – Captain Sundin calls for a shake-up of his struggling (I would have used a much saltier word) team as many thousands of Maple Leafs Read more»
